The USA's 10 Worst States For Roads

Every spring after all the snow melts, cities, towns and states make plans to remedy the devastation snowplows and chained tires generate on their roads.

Four metrics were analyzed to do this.  Each state was ranked on each indicator and the results pooled to generate a cumulative ranking for all 50 states.…

Where RV Now? New York's Monticello Casino and Raceway

After a very long day of driving through some of the worst roads we've ever seen (I-86), we arrived at Monticello Casino and Raceway just before nightfall. We took a few minutes to gather ourselves and then made our way into the casino.

Where RV Now? Shakedown Trip = FAIL

After working very long hours the past few days we managed to clear up the time to finally go camping for a weekend. We awoke early eager to hit the road again (even if only for a few miles).
